Review – NHV Naturals Multi Essentials For Cats

I came across NHV Naturals via Instagram. At that time, I wasn’t really looking to add any supplements to Kitty’s health regime but I kept it in mind in case I needed to look into it.

NHV MULTI ESSENTIALS digestive aid and energy support for cats and dogs

Well, the need came sooner than later when Kitty started to get sick. If you read my previous blog post, you would know that Kitty had some stomach issues and was throwing up frequently. After visiting the vet and learning that there isn’t really anything wrong with her, I did some research and reached out to the lovely people at NHV Naturals to see if they can provide me some tips to help her tummy.

I must say I was very impressed with the time they took to chat with me about Kitty’s condition, her symptoms, etc to try to figure out what is causing her to throw up.  After a lot of discussion, I decided to add the Multi Essentials to her diet.

Multi Essentials for Cats is a herbal multi vitamin, digestive and energy booster. According to their website, it helps in the following ways;

  • Stimulates metabolism
  • Promotes healthy skin and coat
  • Aids effective digestion
  • Reduces fatigue and increases energy levels
  • Helps fill nutritional voids

One of the reasons I picked this product is that last point ‘filling nutritional voids’. I was concerned that Kitty was not retaining any nutrition from her food because she was throwing it up.

Once I got my order in, I was instructed to introduce it slowly. I started with a few drops twice a day. After a few days, I increased it to 0.25ml.  Once Kitty got accustomed to it (which took about a week), I began the recommended dosage of 0.5ml twice a day.

I found the dropper bottle easy to use as the dosage amount is already marked on it so there is no guess work.

As a serial label reader, I was happy to learn that the supplements are made with natural ingredients and no artificial flavours or preservatives are used. One bottle would last about a 100 days.

I suppose the biggest test is to see how she responded to it. I started the supplements on the 24th of October 2017. She took to it fairly easily. For an entire month, she didn’t have throw up incidents. I believe this was a combination of her new food, limited treats and the supplements.

I was really happy to with how things were going with her. She was eating well and her skin and coat was looking better than ever (side note: She did have some dry skin which has now cleared up!)

To end this review, I would encourage every cat parent to look into adding Multi Essentials to their cat’s diet. It will provide great support to your cat’s overall health. One thing to keep in mind is to make sure you give the supplements AFTER meals. Kitty had a couple of throw up incidents a few days ago so I am now mixing the supplements with her wet food to help her digest it better.

Money, Responsibility, Common Sense!!

The past few weeks brought along a few trials that I wasn’t financially prepared for. Trying to provide for medical costs for my Dad and making sure their monthly rent is paid for along with other expenses that seem to pop up takes a toll on a person, especially someone who is not bringing in an income high enough to provide for two households.

This situation paints a grim picture of parents who spend their lives trying to fix their adult children’s problems by putting their own financial future at risk. No, this is not brave or generous. It is plain stupid!

Once your kids are old enough to have a life of their own, cut the purse strings. Focus on your own money and be wise with it. You can help out your children in other ways. I know life happens, you want to help your kids, your grand kids etc etc but at the end of the day, do you seriously think that any one of them would turn around and fund your medical costs, pay all your bills AND put food on your table for the rest of your life?  Sure, you may find a handful of golden children who would but unless you take care of yourself, you can’t depend on anyone else to do it for you (this goes for everyone!) I’m not saying this to be mean but to give you a glimpse of what life could be like if you do not plan!

I am not a parent (nor do I have any desire to be one) so I can’t speak for the whole bond between a parent and child and all that good stuff. But I do know that, as a person with SOME common sense, I would make sure that I prepare for my older years in some way and not expect someone else to do it for me.

There is a reason why they ask you to put your own oxygen mask on first before you help your child when you are on a flight! They know that you can’t really help anyone else unless you help yourself first!
